Abstract Cynipid gallwasps comprise around 1300 species worldwide, predominantly in temperate regions of the Holarctic. The vast majority of species are recorded either from the Nearctic or the Western Palearctic, both of which are long-standing centers of research on the taxonomy and biology of this group. In contrast, the eastern Palearctic fauna is little studied, but potentially extremely rich. The known gallwasps of eastern Asia fall primarily into three tribes: the oak gallwasps (Cynipini… Expand
Taxonomy and Biology of Andricus miriami (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae: Cynipini)—A Remarkable Bud-Galling Cynipid from the Middle East
ABSTRACT The rich Israeli fauna of cynipid gall wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) includes dozens of species, many of which induce complex, conspicuous galls on the five local oak species, in whatExpand
The gall wasp fauna of Iran (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae: Cynipinae): species checklist and biogeographical assessment.
TLDR
Cynipid species richness is highest in the central and northern Zagros, with a distinctively different fauna in the forests along the southern shores of the Caspian Sea. Expand
Ecological niche modelling of species of the rose gall wasp Diplolepis (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) on the Iberian Peninsula
TLDR
These models constitute the first effort to identify suitable areas for species of Diplolepis species on the Iberian Peninsula and could be useful for understanding the evolutionary ecology of these species throughout their distribution in the western Palearctic. Expand
Description of Two New Species of Dryocosmus (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae: Cynipini) Inducing Galls on the Strictly Asian Subgenus Cyclobalanopsis of the Genus Quercus, with a Key to Species of Dryocosmus in East Asia
TLDR
The discovery of two new species of Dryocosmus associated with Q. (C.) acuta suggests the exceptionally diverse host range of DryOCosmus and the species richness of Cynipini on this plant subgenus in Asia. Expand
Taxonomy and biology of Andricus morula , a new gall-wasp species ( Hymenoptera : Cynipidae : Cynipini ) from Mt Hermon , Israel
the Israeli fauna of oak galling wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) has been studied only sporadically until recently, with a focus on only two of the five native oak species in the country. as a result,Expand
A New Species of Dryocosmus Giraud (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae: Cynipini) in Japan and Korea—First Record of Eastern Palearctic Dryocosmus Species Showing Alternation of Generations on Section Cerris Oaks
TLDR
The present study served as the first record of a Dryocosmus species being associated with section Cerris oaks in the Eastern Palearctic region and indicated the occurrence of a prolonged diapause in the asexual generation of D. kunugiphagus. Expand
First evidence of cynipids from the Oceanian Region: the description of Lithonecrus papuanus a new genus and species of cynipid inquiline from Papua New Guinea (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae, Synergini).
TLDR
A new genus and species of inquiline oak gall wasps is described from material reared from galls on Lithocarpus celebicus, collected in Papua New Guinea, and represents the easternmost oriental record of a cynipid wasp (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae). Expand
Discovery of Cynipidae (Hymenoptera: Cynipoidea) from the Indochina Region, with Description of Three New Species
TLDR
It is confirmed that members of Cynipini that induce galls on Cyclobalanopsis (the ring cup oaks) are widely distributed in Asia, as predicted previously. Expand
Phylogeny of Holarctic gall wasps of the genera Diplolepis and Periclistus (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) based on DNA barcodes
TLDR
Rose gall wasps Diplolepis and Periclistus need taxonomic revision and gall morphology alone may be inadequate to delimit species, according to morphological and molecular data. Expand
A review of the species in the genus Synergus Hartig (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae: Synergini) from mainland China, with an updated key to the Eastern Palaearctic and Oriental species
TLDR
This work provides a revision of this genus in mainland China, providing new biological and distributional data for all the species as well as redescriptions, pictures and other corrections for those which were originally poorly characterized. Expand

The phylogenetic relationships between Dryocosmus, Chilaspis and allied genera of oak gallwasps (Hymenoptera, Cynipidae: Cynipini)
Abstract Oak gallwasps (Hymenoptera; Cynipidae, tribe Cynipini) are cyclically parthenogenetic insects that induce galls on specific plant hosts in the family Fagaceae. Understanding the processesExpand
Abundance patterns and species richness of the parasitoids and inquilines of the alien gall-former Andricus quercuscalicis (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae)
TLDR
Two parasitoid species were restricted to the native range in south-eastern Europe (Aulogymnus trilineatus) while another species was present throughout continental Europe but is not yet recorded from the British Isles (Cecidostiba hilaris). Expand
Phylogeny and early evolution of the Cynipoidea (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
Parsimony analysis of 110 external morphological characters of adults implies that cynipoids were originally parasitoids of wood‐boring insect larvae and that the other modes of life evolved secondarily within the group. Expand
Spatial and temporal variation in guild structure: parasitoids and inquilines of Andricus quercuscalicis (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) in its native and alien ranges.
TLDR
A tortricid moth which develops as an inquiline in the agamic galls of A. quercuscalicis kills the gall causer; this is the first description of such an interaction between moths and cynipids. Expand
Doses Wolbachia Induce Unisexuality in Oak Gall Wasps? (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae)
TLDR
Wolbachia is not responsible for unisexuality in heterogonic or thelytokous species of Cynipini, according to a PCR assay on the unisexual adults. Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of higher‐level gall wasp relationships (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae)
TLDR
The analysis was based on detailed study of the skeletal morphology of adults, resulting in 164 phylogenetically informative characters, complemented with a few biological characters that suggested that the high level of homoplasy is characteristic of the Cynipidae and not the result of the amount of available phylogenetically conservative characters being exhausted. Expand
Aylax hypecoi Trotter (Hymenoptera, Cynipidae) in Europe: Redescription, with taxonomic and biological notes
TLDR
The species has now been found in Bulgaria and thus its presence in Europe is confirmed for the first time, and its taxonomic and phylogenetic position is discussed. Expand
Geographic and between-generation variation in the parasitoid communities associated with an invading gallwasp, Andricus quercuscalicis (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae)
TLDR
Surprisingly, in spite of the differences in the nature of the gall resource in the two generations, over their entire range (native and invaded) the parasitoid guilds of the two are equally species rich. Expand
Revision of the genus Chilaspis Mayr, 1881 (Hymenoptera: Cynipoidea: Cynipidae)
Abstract Diagnostic characters for the Western Palaearctic genus Chilaspis and a key for its separation from closely related genera, Biorhiza, Cynips, Plagiotrochus, and Dryocosmus are given.Expand
Alien herbivores and native parasitoids: rapid developments and structure of the parasitoid and inquiline complex in an invading gall wasp Andricus quercuscalicis (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae)
TLDR
Since rates of parasitism of the gall former are still low, parasitoids are unlikely to play a major role in the population dynamics of this invading gall wasp at present, but the rapidly increasing inquiline and parasitoid attack could be a source of increased mortality for native cynipid species which are the alternative hosts of those Parasitoid species.
